If you're a fan who wants to revel in great stats and no substance, there's a team in Pickens that gives away free tickets at Bi-Lo. Please, have at it.

In fact the O line looks pretty good when running off tackle or with a pulling guard. We could be more successful if we keep up that kind of play calling for the run game.

Let's not forget that Carson will be back next year as well and Wild will be back in the lineup too. Definitely no shortage of talent in the RB spot for next year.

I would hardly believe that it's a lack of sampling during this year. Those 1 and 1/2 games were against UAB and ECU, which would NOT have brought his passing efficiency numbers down versus games like LSU and FLA.

If anything, we have a conservative estimate on Connor's PE.

Which means you don't understand the Xs and Os of football. The single back formations are part of the zone blocking schemes...that's what you see in that "old" film. Changing to the I formation isn't going to solve the fundamental problem of trying to run the ball v. athletic and fast defenses...go review the Bama v. LSU & TAMU games. Was Bama dominant on the LOS with their great OL?
Some NFL teams are running the zone blocking effectively...Skins and Houston are 2.....we have to continue to grow up our OL guys and get smarter with our schemes. Zone blocking works if done right with the right guys....that "old" film shows it clearly.

People just don't understand that Nunn, Watkins, Johnson, Chisolm, and Eckerson was a good run blocking OL with 4 of those guys upperclassmen. We have not had a run blocking OL as good as that group...this was all on Shawn Elliott...he's the one who picked them and found Garrett Chisolm. He is one of the best OL coaches around but people have short memories.

We have to get smarter with our running game and don't forget we are at our best with a big back driving the pile and wearing down a defense. LSU showed us how it's done....but even they lost to Bama, who lost to TAMU, who lost to UF and LSU. We play in the SEC...the toughest conference in the nation and by and far the toughest conference to run the ball in.

You know, most post-game interviews with Spurrier he said "I thought we could hit a gy deep but we dumped it off and..."or 'I guess he saw something I didn't"

I've heard that a bit, Shaw isn't All-SEC caliber, and he might not start anywhere else but maybe Auburn this year. I wish him luck and hope he can really take the mantle and prove the doubters wrong, so far he's had one great game and a bunch of at least he didn't lose us the game, types of games. Am I the only one sick and tired of a sub-par Qb and OL holding us back? Mangus is a great recruiter, but I stand by my statement that I question his QB coach ability...Garcia and Shaw both struggle with the exact same things on the field, the one difference Shaw doesn't try to force the frozen rope passes as often, but he wants to run quicker. Elliot, imho should get next year before we start calling for his head. it takes alot more to build an SEC caliber line than it does an SEC caliber WR corps. I like his fire but by no means am I going to say "HE'S AWESOME!"

GO Cocks.

We're 8 and 2. Is this what winning does? Wow, I always wondered why so many Georgia fans kept wanting to can their Coach year after year. I thought most Gamecocks fans, fans who'd stuck with our team during some rather lean years (0-11), were above all this. Apparently not. A burn down the house thread such as this certainly won't help recruiting.

This is what happens when you win. Spurrier raised the expectations.

It also doesn't help that the team didn't play to its potential in 2 of the 3 games that actually meant something this year.

That is where my frustration lies. Quit playing like shit when there is a ton on the line. If you play a good game and still lose, fine. But getting our ass kicked like @UF is inexcusable.

Wait a minute... Consider these things...
First We are putting double digit winning seasons together... When did that happen last??? Like never.

Second I for one am proud of this team and where they have taken us as fans. We have never had this much success. At least not in my 60 years.

Third look at the schedule next year. It will be another banner year. We will beat Clemscum for the fifth year in a row ( Yes, we will win this year ).

Forth as a business man, I would never consider firing a manager (or managing team) who has had this much success tuning aroud a losing office. And face it. Before this coaching staff we were mediocre at best .

PLEASE PLEASE JUST ENJOY IT

Really? Connor played well on the road LY at MSU, TN and in the bowl game against Nebraska.

And, do you really think that we would be better served to start a FR or RS FR at QB in the second game of the season in Athens?

Not really. He scored like 1 TD in each of those SEC games. Played pretty well vs Nebraska, but that's not a true road game and the Big Ten is bad.

Last year at MSU he threw two ints with a pick and his longest pass was 19 yards. I don't rem,ever him playing well at all that game.

At UT he had 87 yards thru 4 quarters a td and an int. not good either.

And the bowl game was neutral site game

I meant then move on as a SC fan. SC is not going to be a champion this year and hasn't been a Champion in the past. So from your "all or nothing" attitude, I would say you should just move on. Because you are definitely "nothing" as a SC fan from your own attitude. Why would you pull for a complete loser like SC???
